Hizbullah leader Hassan Nasrallah refused to emerge from his bunker on Thursday to celebrate his 46th birthday. A Hizbullah source told the Egyptian Al-Ahara'am newspaper that Nasrallah turned down a request from youngsters in his movement and in other organizations to celebrate his birthday in a modest manner in the Da'ahiyeh neighborhood of south Beirut. Nasrallah said that he preferred to celebrate with his "warriors" when security conditions made it possible to do so. On Tuesday Prime Minister Ehud Olmert mocked Nasrallah saying, "I walk around freely, and he's still hiding in a bunker." Olmert said that he was not concerned by the last interview given by the Hizbullah leader and he was not bothered by Nasrallah's "victory speech."
